Fluent Participates in Diesel Emissions Reduction Consortium

News Fluent Inc., world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, announces that it will once again participate in the International Diesel Emissions Reduction Consortium (DERC), which was introduced last year by the Engine Research Center (ERC) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The purpose of the DERC is to assist diesel engine manufacturers and related industries to meet future diesel engine emissions regulations.

“We are excited to reaffirm our commitment to the DERC,” says Werner Seibert, Fluent’s Global Automotive Market Manager, “The consortium's mission to provide members with access to university research results that can be applied to 2010 mandates for reduction in oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) levels, is directly inline with one of the main areas of research at Fluent. We see numerical modeling tools such as CFD as key facilitators in the development of future technologies that meet these stringent emission targets and hence access to the world-renowned expertise at the ERC, available through this consortium, complement well our own internal development programs. Through partnership programs such as this our goal is to more rapidly expand and validate our CFD software solutions for modeling diesel engines and downstream reduction systems and maintain our position as the fastest growing automotive CFD vendor.”

Participation in the Consortium provides significant leveraging of funds to members. Current ERC funding from the US government and worldwide industrialists is approximately $3.5 M, and secures the involvement of six faculty, five research staff, and over 80 graduate students and post-docs. Consortium member companies have access to these resources pre-competitively for solving specific engineering problems within their own business strategy, and to meet future diesel engine emission regulations. The Consortium also provides a forum for sharing information and research findings to engine manufacturers and related industries.
